Yeah except none of the build engine ports have reliable coop with multiplayer save/loading.

So I'm still waiting for "proper" of that with Duke3D, and they already released Shadow Warrior instead of working on that.

There's something very confusing about this game which made me stop bothering with it in beta. It felt purposeless, without even basic MMO attempts at narrative, surrounded with constantly spawning enemies...

Hopefully they'll overcome that somehow, because I really want to like it.

Myth 2 was a well-known PC title and it did well.

The Duke3D redux port STILL hasn't delivered the promised coop multiplayer, which is the only reason I bought it anyway (most Duke3d ports don't have working coop), and they already release Shadow Warrior?

Fuck them.

It is quite possible that PS4 games will look better than what the highest-end PC can pull off.

There is a TON of CPU/GPU power that is being wasted through the pipelines of an all-purpose system such as Windows.

Consoles always have a much shorter pipeline and far fewer background processes, and it's on controlled hardware which can be severely optimized for without fearing for compatibility.

That's how they managed to port Quake 2 to the freaking PS1. This is how PS2 pulled off games like Shadow of the Colossus and Black (with shader effects the console isn't capable off). This is how they got a near-full-featured GTA title on the Nintendo DS. This is how end-of-life PS3 titles like "Last Of Us" look pretty stunning considering the console is based on GeForce3-strength hardware.

PS4 hardware is incomparably more powerful, so I don't exclude the possibility that it's going to beat PC in terms of visuals.

I tried playing L4D2 a week ago and zombies were lagging all over the place (instantly changing location on screen) with a ping of 50.

The movement in the game feels more like walking on a soapy floor, too. Something's off. This isn't the game I played a year ago.

Install Windows 8, download and install classic menu, and you got a very good OS. It boots directly to the desktop, has a classic start menu, and Win8 is rock stable.

Install Windows 7, and you've got a very good OS. It boots directly to the desktop, has a classic start menu, and Win7 is rock stable.
Sadly it lacks native USB 3.0 support, coalescing clock timers, advanced GPU error recovery, and eDrive support (for self-encrypting SSDs), among other things.

Not that Win7 is a bad OS, but it's coming up on 4 years old now. It's no longer a spring chicken. New technologies come out and it gets slowly outdated. For equally old machines that's fine, but sticking with Win7 on a Haswell Ultrabook for example would be absurd.

USB 3.0 support - download a driver.

The rest are buzzwords a hardcore nerd might drool over, but they really don't mean squat.

Here's an example of a must-have upgrade: Windows 2000 to Windows XP. Why ?

Because

a)proper hyperthreading support at the time when HT became popular
b)Cleartype at the time when LCDs were massively gaining popularity

Windows 8 has nothing like that on it.

You just don't get it. Americans hate everybody.

It's funny how often the most moronic statements are preceded by "You just don't get it", almost as if the utterer is actually convinced they are in possession of a higher truth.

The most ironic and hilarious part is, if the company kept producing Doom-spirited games instead of Doom3 and Rage, they would've carved a loyal if niche following in the world of modern dumb FPS.

What's funny is that they still didn't add promised multiplayer to the Duke3D redux Steam thingy, but are already working on Shadow Warrior.

What's also funny is that there isn't a single Duke3D/SW port out there that has stable campaign coop with proper saving/loading without desyncs or other surprises.

Verno is the voice of sanity in this thread.

Americans have it too good to understand how much worse others countries have it, even the supposedly "free" ones (on paper). And those from other countries have misplaced pride so they won't admit that America still enjoys more freedoms than they do.

And not just freedoms, but everyday conveniences, opportunities and individual wealth.

That said, under King Obama the country has definitely taken a big step toward dictatorship and general third-worldliness.

Aliens:CM makes Jurassic Park: Trespasser look like a masterpiece of game design. It is worthless from beginning to end.
